    Harshal , i was talking about windows9.X not about NT or 2000.and win2k
is next of win NT gen not of win9X.
   and as far as hotmail is concerned go to http://freebsd.org and see there
that hotmail runs on FreeBSD not on Win2k(i last visited freebsd site about
5 days ago)

and yahoo too runs on FreeBSD
